This Pinoy Vlogger Was Just Named Champion in an International Vlog Fest

Wil Dasovich just won an international vlog fest!

In an Instagram post, Wil announced the good news that he had been named champion of the festival in Malta where he had also won a cash prize of $30,000 (approx. PHP 1.5 million).

“We did it!” he wrote on his post. “First award I’ve ever got that came with a bag, how generous.”

VlogFest Malta gathered together social media influencers from around the world to experience the best that the island had to offer to tourists. Running from July 9 to July 14, 2021, VlogFest Malta crowned the winner based on the number of votes they would get from their followers for the travel video they would create during the competition.

Wil flew to the island with his sister Hailey and fellow vlogger Daniel Marsh.

“This entire Eurotip has been one of the most incredible travels of my life and to be honest, before heading on this trip I’d barely even heard of Malta! But after weeks on this island I can definitely say it’s one of the most unique countries I’ve been to,” he shared on his post.

“I’m gratified through the roof to be [cast] in this creative group of filmmakers who were all able to showcase this lesser-known gem of the Mediterranean in their own customized way of storytelling.”

In another post, Wil reminisced on his editing process at the time and opened up on how taxing consistent content creation actually is to his mental health.

“Through my Vlogfest video you witnessed the highlights of this amazing trip. But there’s another side of the creation process that is not so beautiful. Moments like this of self-confrontation where you have to ask yourself how much you really enjoy the whole process & is it worth the stress?” he began.

“While people were out having the time of their lives in the vibrant town of St. Julians, I remained in dark solitude working on that bloody video trying to create a story with meaning. These long hours entail a necessary amount of mental suffering.”

“Nevertheless, temporary suffering is the only path to long term fulfillment,” he continued. “The video I created for @thevlogfest captures my inner feelings about the cognitive dissonance I face on a regular basis in trying to live a healthy & productive life vs trying to simply, LIVE. Though my video was about breaking discipline, it is ultimately discipline that allows me to live freely. Discipline = Freedom, and only until you’ve solidified your routine is when you shall have the authority to break it!”
